I'm studying for my block 3 and one category is specialty items. which is vague, right. 

 

could you guys shed some input on various culinary specialty items.      like soups , sauces, salads, and dressings, sandwichs. ect...

 

 

thanks

 i might be wrong but if you are calling it block three it makes me think it's for your red seal which only canadians would understand. this forum is about 95% american so not many people would know what you are talking about. if you are canadian then it will vary from province to province. i think that the category specialty items usually refers  to items that most people wouldn't use on a day to day basis such as veal sweetbreads and that type of thing. your apprenticeship book should have categories that explain what you need to know or your instructor or advisor will explain.

Yes, very tough question and it depends on individual opinion...and I belong to 5% community on this forum, according to rbrad, so my view on specialities would be very different than yours...biggrin.gif
